How to make a Bow - PVC Bow - Quick and Easy

In this video, I show you the steps to make yourself a simple bow out of pvc.
You do not need any heat or reshaping of the pvc to do this, just some simple cutting and sawing is needed. 
This bow is a powerful and accurate weapon.
Be careful and make sure you shoot it safely.

You will need:
- PVC - One piece of 1" at 12 inches long
- PVC - One piece of 3/4" at 5 feet long
- PVC - Two pieces of 1/2" at 4 inches long
- a Saw
- Paracord (string)
- rubber mallet (hammer)
- Electrical tape or duct tape
- paper clip

If you are good with your hands, less than an hour if you have everything in the video.

Very Cool!

Thanks, I might try pipe insulation instead of a paperclip

Sounds like a plan

Why do you have to cut the smaller pieces
SpecificLove (author)  Samman10148 months ago
I cut them so they would be easier to slide inside the larger pipe.
I made a bow just like this. They are better than some bows you can buy at cabelas.
